The Sharp Family Tourism and Education Center, also known as the Usonian House, is a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida being used a visitor center for campus guests. It is the college's 13th Wright designed building and was constructed in 2013 according to plans that the architect created in 1938. The 1,700 sq. ft. building includes textile-block construction, colored glass in perforated concrete blocks, Wright photographs, a documentary film about the architect's work at the school, and furniture designed by Wright. The building was originally designed to be faculty housing.[1]
